Hello,

I am trying to assemble a pseudo-chromosome from a few thousand 130bp oligos with 30bp of overlap. I've aligned all of my reads to their reference and I have at least 20X coverage for each oligo. I've tried megahit and spades but I am not quite getting the correct scaffold. Is there an assembler that is more adept at this style of assembly?

If not, is there a tool that can generate consensus reads from NGS data?

Thanks.

Perhaps tadpole.sh from BBMap suite may work.

Tadpole guide is available.

SPAdes should work in this case, so there's either something wrong with your data, or you're using them wrong. Please provide the SPAdes/MEGAHIT commands you ran and explain what you mean exactly by "I am not quite getting the correct scaffold".
